    I got pulled back into World of Warcraft. I didn't think I'd ever go back, but I'm actually having a lot of fun with Legion content. Some good story telling going on, especially with the class based stuff. Though I think the terrain of the Broken Isles was specifically designed to infuriate me. I just do not navigate 3D spaces in video games well.

    Replaying Final Fantasy Tactics. I forgot how addicting this game was. To the grind...

    I played WoW for about 10 years but stopped about a year ago. It takes up so much time and I'm not that great at it, hah. Sometimes I miss it though!

    I mostly play board/card games and the one I've been playing a lot recently is called Coup. I highly recommend it!
    It is a distopian bluffing assassination game and only takes 8-10 minutes to play (because everyone dies pretty quick).

    Others I've been playing are Sushi Go!, Pandemic and Settlers of Catan.

    Finished up a playthrough of Fallout 4, and now I'm on to my first run through Fallout 3.

    Nice! I actually just returned to Fallout 4. Did have it on survival mode but that's...ahem...not enjoyable. So, back to recording Chloe's adventures on youtube it is. :)

    World of Warcraft, this will be my thirteenth year.
    I haven't played since early November because I'm in a 'writing cycle' at the moment. I cannot write AND play WoW, so I have to, obviously, stop doing one to indulge in the other.
    Last week I finished my third book in a Trilogy I've been working on for 8 years, and suddenly that 'burned out feeling' is hitting me, and I keep looking at the BattleNet link on my desktop and thinking, "I'll just log my Trader on..." But I'm going to deny the lure and push on with a re-write of Book one through to book three, whilst it's all still fresh in my mind.

    And then I can reward myself with a game of WoW, and Legion is SO great! I'm missing it. I never cancel my sub, so it's there, waiting for me. :)

    When I need a break from writing I play Age of Mythology, Doom or Diablo 3, but usually only for 10 minutes every four days or so. I've set up a Windows 95 system for my son and have been playing Xwing vs Tie Fighter, still a fun game!

    Wow! I am seriously impressed by your self-discipline. You must be dying to get back with the recent update.

    I am!
    I just don't want to lose my writing momentum. Luckily I've never been a big raider.

    Do you play? Is the update fabulous?

    Reading this made me laugh and smile! WoW was a huge part of my childhood. Both of my parents, my siblings, aunt, cousin and grandmother all played. Guild members became real good friends and would come visit us. It was all about the community for me, since I wasn't that great a player. :)

    Maybe I'll just reactivate...;)

    You make a good point about not being able to write and play WoW! I feel I can't play and go to school, and since I'm back in school again, well. That's that!

    That's so fabulous! I play WoW with my sister and my three children, it's s great family 'outing' hah.
    The community is wonderful, and when we meet toxic people we all block them, easy!

    It's a fun game. When I'm not playing I'm filled with memories and feelings from the game; different songs and events and zones. And when I'm playing all my memories are of my books, the people I've created and the lore.

    Never content! :D

    I play MMOs with my husband. WoW was the first we played together. :) We just recently reactivated after being discontent in other games.

    Persona 5 arrived about five days ago, and I've already put in over 20 hours. The main story is supposed to last about 80+ hours, and you have some options for drawing out each gameplay "day," so it could last 100+ hours.

    I'm loving it. But there are some mild quibbles. I'll just mention one obliquely: The character Morgana should have the title Lord of Exposition.

    I subscribed to the Humble Monthly bundle a while back and in the last batch the game Morphblade showed up. It's a simple abstract game about moving between hexes that change your abilities, and about avoiding/defeating enemies. It's on Steam.

    I'm planning a Classic run for Birthright. Eek.

    Nice. I'm busy with Fire Emblem Awakening right now. Classic/Hard.
     
  19. ^I tried that once. By Chapter 13, I only had half an army, literally. :p

    I'm one of those people who can't bear to lose anyone, so I reset if someone dies. I.e. I end up doing the same chapter over and over a lot of the time.

    I feel like I might want to try accepting deaths in a playthrough one of these days, but I don't think I'd be able to handle the stress, ha. Not with all those guys wielding killer axes. (Also, it would probably be impossible to keep any fliers alive; there always seems to be archer coming out of nowhere.)
